Today we unveil the 8th content update, complete with a new strategy and balance tweaks; renovations for the CW and Duel season, and a sneak peek to the brand new World 2.0 map.

This update also marks the end of the summer season. Thank you to all players who participated throughout the months. Big congratulations to Paradox who've managed to clinch their first trophy and season win, with an impressive 70% winrate across 223 games, setting a new record for seasonal ELO at 1258.9. Big honorable mention as well to Hellenism, who for the 3rd season in a row managed to play the most games in a season. Will they extend their streak to a whole year?







With the goal to spice things up and improve the season, we've decided to add a spin to how it's concluded. The season trophies no longer go just to the Top3 ELO finalists after the season's end, instead the Top 4 clans will have to face each other in best-of-5 play-in tournament at the last month of the season to determine the medalists.



We have also decided to make an official CW rule book and added some new regulations for the play-in tournament to it. Notable new ones include:

  • A minimum of 70 games to qualify *
  • Teams will be seeded accordingly
  • Teams that have been created/revived 14 days after the start of the season won't be eligible to participate *
  • Regular season will end on the 14th of every season month end
  • Play-in tournament will begin on the 15th of every season month end

    * Relaxed for first season

    The prize pool additionally has been extended to the 4th best placed team for the next team as well, effectively making your potential to earn:

  • 1st place: 80,000 SP + 8,000
  • 2nd place: 50,000 SP + 5,000
  • 3rd place: 20,000 SP + 2,000
  • 4th place: 10,000 SP + 1,000

  • Most games played 100,000 SP + 10,000

    For more information head here.







    To encourage players, a new prizepool will be introduced for the season:

  • 1st place:: 100,000 SP + 3,000
  • 2nd place: 50,000 SP + 1,500
  • 3rd place:: 30,000 SP + 1,000
  • 4th place: 15,000 SP + 500
  • 5th place: 10,000 SP + 350
  • 6th place: 5,000 SP + 200
  • 7th place: 3,000 SP + 100
  • 8th place: 2,000 SP + 100
  • 9th place: 1,000 SP + 100
  • 10th place: 750 SP + 100
  • 11th place: 500 SP + 100
  • 12th place: 250 SP + 100

    More updates regarding the duel system will be released in the future. We aim to improve the competition.






    New strategy:

    Militia:

    Fortifications:

    • Defense decreased from 6 to 2 (Before only units with ≥6 defense could receive the bonus)








    World 2.0 is the upcoming evolution of the classic World Map, geared toward the new player experience. We have taken everything good and iconic about the current map and made it better. With an updated background, new borders and a broader focus on previously neglected presets and areas of the map. This new map will premier sometime towards the end of the year alongside a new strategy and balance changes targeted at reworking obsolete strategies. We look forward for what this has in store and invite you to have a sneak peak at the new visuals.

    I don't like it because it reminds me of an RP map than an actual competitive map with all those extra countries and cities. Not only that, but the art work is reminiscent of RP maps as well.

    Or don't, because people have done it already.

    Yeah, along with that, it really peeves me how Kosovo isn't an actual country on the World Map 2.0. It really speaks volume about the political views of the map maker.

    For those of you competitive players who are worried about the map:
    - This map will become the official atWar default map if it gets implemented, but the original map will still be playable.
    - The map mostly aims to improve the areas of the current map that are shit, to make them feel more competitive, fun, and playable (basically everywhere else but Europe)
    - Most of Europe will remain unchanged, but some cities will be added.
    - Nothing of what you see in the pictures for the promotion is set in stone. It's just a draft. Some of the cities you see won't be included in the final version.
    - Please keep an open mind. The map aims to improve the current map, especially the areas that we don't love (everywhere but Europe). The map won't change what you already love about the map.

    The NC change is hilarious. Its the equivalent of a > +2 att and def buff onto the destroyers which were already the strongest default unit in the game. So random. Must be fun to abuse on the right settings.

    to the removal of the ability to disable buildings.
